Montclair State University announced that it is reinstating its wrestling and men's lacrosse teams. The New Jersey institution had cut them earlier this year for financial reasons, but was able to restore them -- and increase support for some women's programs -- based on financial backing provided by supporters of the teams.
For the first time in its history, Bob Jones University is seeking accreditation, the Associated Press reported. The university is seeking recognition from a Christian accrediting group, but it is not changing its policy of not seeking federal aid for its students.
